Supplier Agreements - Kingsway and Authentic

Dear Friends,

As you are aware, discussions with our suppliers are ongoing as we re-establish trading relationships and re-stock the business. We promised to keep you informed of developments and are sending you the latest supplier agreements and stock updates below.

ANNOUNCEMENT FROM STL DISTRIBUTION AND KINGSWAY
As of February 1st 2010 Kingsway will return trade distribution to its premises in Eastbourne. With an expanded warehouse specifically fitted for the task, this represents an exciting new phase for the company. Kingsway product will also continue to be made available through STL Distribution in Carlisle.

“We have given much consideration to our position regarding distribution,” explains Jonathan Brown, Director of Business Development, “this gives us dedicated and detailed management information, increases our capacity for other products and puts us firmly in the driving seat of our own vehicle.”

“Our relationship with STL Distribution spanned over two decades”, says John Paculabo, Executive Director, “and we leave on good terms and wish them every success for the future. As Kingsway enters this new season, while we shall support STL Distribution’s wholesale operation we feel that handling our own distribution is critical to our future development. We are committed to serving retailers to the very best of our ability, and look forward to this new phase in our development.”

Ken Munro, CEO STL Distribution, said, “We are pleased to continue our close working relationship with Kingsway and will be supporting them fully throughout this transition. We are pleased that Kingsway products will continue to be available through STL Distribution’s wholesale channels as part of our ongoing strategy to offer the retailer a one-stop-service for all their Christian products.”

Dear STL Distribution, thank you so much for keeping us fully informed of the situation your end.
I am glad you gave the full details, it seems more than Kingsway have been able to do over the last month when I was trying to get product in.
Please be assured of my continuing goodwill to yourselves and all you are doing in this time of upheaval.
